Take Me Out contestant Scott made such a strong initial impression on the 30 single ladies on Take Me Out that not one of them turned their light off at first.
But the pianist from Huddersfield quickly embarrassed himself by tripping up the stairs in the studio – much to the amusement of the show’s host Paddy McGuinness, and the TV viewers at home.
“It’s all right, Scott… nobody saw,” quipped Paddy.
Fans were quick to take to Twitter.
“Ahh this Scott guy buckled on the stairs,” wrote one viewer, alongside an emoji of a face crying with laughter.
“Burst out laughing,” wrote another.
Scott still proved to be a popular contestant, however. “I’d leave my light on for Scott,” wrote one fan.

“Scott was lovely even with a slight slip up,” added another.
A male viewer wrote: “That bloke Scott has bossed it on #TakeMeOut.”
Scott impressed viewers by playing the piano in his final round. He then had to choose between brunettes Nicola and Rebecca.
Rebecca told him that “no-one had seen his fall” but Scott opted to take Nicola to the Isle of Fernandos.
“Scott was an idiot for not choosing Rebecca, the cutest gal ever #TakeMeOut” wrote fan.
Viewers will find out how Scott and Nicola got on when their date is aired on next week’s show.
